In December 2009, Microsoft announced the acquisition of Opalis Software and added important technology to the System Center family.

Opalis delivers IT process automation capabilities, including task orchestration across different systems (including BMC, CA, IBM, HP, …), standardization of processes, automation of repetitive tasks, and integrates with System Center and many third-party tools.

Opalis software will be granted to any existing or new SMSE (Server Management Suite Enterprise) or SMSD (Server Management Suite Datacenter) license with active Software Assurance coverage as of December 10, 2009.
